Letter: National anthem, flag deserve great respect

National anthem, flag deserve great respect

When the national anthem or flag is displayed, I consider it a privilege to stand with hand over heart to honor those who served our country. I’m honoring my five uncles, husbands (one and two) who served in World War II, one stepson and three grandsons who served in peace and other wars, and a great-grandson who has enlisted and will serve in the Navy after he graduates in 2018.

Many young men from my high school could not attend graduation because they were also serving. How can we forget?
